Here is my version of “The knife in the Briefcase”. Just like last time, I drew a picture of one of the characters! Leave a like if you want to see more THURSDAY THRILLERS! And if you haven’t already, make sure to follow my blog. 🙂

The man with the briefcase...

The man with the briefcase…

Jane looks at her watch while the checkout girl bags her groceries. 4:30! She has just one hour to get home and start making a special dinner for her daughter, Amy. Amy is on holiday from college. This is the first time Jane will see her daughter in 3 months! Aside from video chatting, of course. Jane takes her groceries to her car and starts to put the bags in the trunk, when she notices that it has a flat tire!

“Great! How on earth am I going to make it home in time!” Jane says to herself.

Jane calls a tow truck company, but unfortunately it will take an hour before they get to the grocery store. A well-dressed man, maybe a business man, approaches Jane.

“I heard all the commotion and thought I might be able to help you!” he says.

He looks familiar but Jane can’t seem to place him. She accepts his offer and her tire is replaced in just 20 minutes! She thanks the man but just as she is about to open the car door and leave, the stranger asks for a lift. Forgetting about the dinner, Jane agrees.

“Thanks! But if you don’t mind I have to use the restroom. Just wait here, I won’t take too long!” he exclaims.

He leaves his briefcase in the front seat and heads to the bathroom. A minute or two passes and Jane remembers that she has to get home and prepare dinner for her daughter! Jane races home and makes a special meal. Hours later, Jane is sitting with her family in the dinning room, exchanging stories of their day when she suddenly remembers the man that changed her tire! Jane, her husband and her daughter go to the car and find the man’s briefcase. They open it and find a knife, some rope, duct tape and an ice pick (the ice pick caused the flat tire). Now Jane remembers where she saw the man! He was hanging around the grocery parking lot for the past two weeks, observing her every move!
